The government is recommending seasonal flu vaccinations for certain patients who may be at risk; this vaccination gives good protection against flu and usually has few, if any, side effects. If you fall into this "at risk" category, we are recommending that you have this vaccination. It is important that you take advantage of this offer because not only is an attack of the flu very unpleasant, but it can also give rise to serious complications, particularly as you get older.
Special Flu vaccination clinics are being run on some Saturday mornings and some weekdays from the end of September. As in previous years we are also running separate vaccination clinics at our Sarratt surgery.
The government is also recommending Pneumococcal vaccination for all our patients over 65 who haven’t already been vaccinated. We will be pleased to undertake these at the same appointment in which you have the flu vaccination.
To ensure that your medical record is up to date please complete our Health Information Update sheet overleaf and return it to the surgery at your convenience.
